Canada Emergency Student Benefit (CESB)
The CESB will provide financial support to post-secondary students, and recent post-secondary and high school graduates who are unable to find work due to COVID-19, and who are not eligible for the Canada Emergency Response Benefit or Employment Insurance, or are unable to find work due to COVID-19.
This benefit will provide $1,250 per month for eligible students or $2,000 per month for eligible students with dependents or disabilities.
Students who are eligible for the CESB can apply through the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). Applications for the CESB open Friday, May 15th at 6 am ET, but if you haven’t ever filed a Canadian tax return, you have to register with the CRA ahead of applying. This benefit will be available from May to August 2020.
